Nike has connections to nearly every sport, but some of its strongest roots lie in track and field. Co-founders Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight were well-known for their track and field prowess, and the brand really got off the ground by peddling running shoes.

With this in mind, Nike is offering a deep dive into what it's doing for track and field athletes in the 2016 Rio Olympics. 

The brand dropped a limited edition track and field book. Nike athletes such as Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Brasilian pole vaulter Fabiana Murer, Chinese sprinter Su Bingtian, and American decathlete Ashton Eaton will be highlighted, along with commentary from gold medalist runner Michael Johnson​.

This comprehensive track and field book also covers designers Tinker and Tobie Hatfield's pole-vaulting experiences.

150 copies of the Nike track and field book will be released today at NikeLab 21 Mercer, along with a Portuguese version at Nike's pop-up spaces in Rio.
